Celebrate National Nurses Week!
National Nurses Week, May 6 to 12, allows us to honor the dedicated service of nurses throughout Indian Country. The 2015 theme "Ethical practice, Quality care" encourages us to recognize the ethical obligations in the nursing profession, as well as acknowledge the commitment, compassion, and care that nurses display in their practice. This is a wonderful time to thank the nurses in your life!
